Subject: Groups - Action Item Modified: #0123 Obtain MIME type registration for HTTP lookup of SAML
OASIS Security Services TC member, Eve Maler (email@example.com) has modified this action item. Number: #0123 Description: Obtain MIME type registration for HTTP lookup of SAML Owner: Jeff Hodges (Jeff.Hodges@sun.com) Status: Open Comments: Rob Philpott 2004-06-23 15:29 GMT Attached is the initial rev of an I-D seeking to register the MIME media type "application/saml+xml". Please review. I've pinged the I-D editor to request a filename for the doc, I'll submit it to both the I-D editor and the SSTC doc repository once that's finalized (std procedure for I-Ds). In concocting this draft, I've noted that MIME media type registrations aren't necessarily the simple little registration exercise I'd thought they were. They (the firstname.lastname@example.org denizens) may desire more content, e.g. sec considerations, in this doc. We'll see. Nominally, I think it's "good enough" as is, especially since the SAML spec sets have thorough sec considerations sections and I've referenced said spec sets carefully. Anyway, we'll see. Also, I based this on a draft registration for application/rdf+xml. In that draft, Aaron Schwartz claimed an optional parameter of "charset", and indicated that the considerations thereof are the same as for "application/xml" (as documented in http://www.ietf.org/rfc/rfc3023.txt). Additionally, he did the same thing for the "encoding considerations", i.e. said they were the same as for "application/xml". So, without excrutiating research, I did the same thing in this draft. fwiw/fyi. anyway, lemme know whatcha think. thanks, JeffH Rob Philpott 2004-08-03 05:33 GMT 27-Jul: * Scott – we need to do one for metadata as well. Roll the metadata one into AI #123. Rob Philpott 2004-09-22 04:59 GMT 14-Sep: JeffH: comments received from reviewers re magic numbers and XML awareness of MIME processor. Should be ready to go to IESG. 21-Sep: Jeff posted assertion and metadata-secific documents to the list. These are to be added to the relevant documents as an appendix before public review. Eve Maler 2004-10-12 16:30 GMT 12 Oct 2004: Jeff has submitted the registration docs to the IESG last week, and they're chewing on it. This is a new process, so we're guinea pigs. We don't want to check off this item until it's accepted.
